Even for my "hobbies" now, I use Entity Framework (EF ORM).

Using "code first", your POCO's can generate the data base (local file; sql express; standard):

db.Initialize().

(Handy when "importing" 3rd party xml-type data bases).

Access using LINQ; with or without lazy loading.

Using a repository pattern, you centralize and "standardize" your access methods for "that" db context. Helps the thought process.

Change your "data model" in code and recreate your db with one line of code.

NuGet manages all the EF dependencies.

In your case, using EF "database first", it's a simple matter to generate your "entities"; and "expand" them using partial classes. You can then "convert" to "code first" for continued development.
